Now, how are they going to convince that guy getting on the boat to leave the tube in the water without being called racists for trying to oppress him?
naw... it's propaganda.... the boat actually more resembles a pontoon houseboat, and they people climbing into it won't want to get out and climb the dumb ladder, so we'll be left with problems trying to transport food and fresh water to them, and the water will become polluted with their waste.

It simply does not work the way that the propagandists are proclaiming.... history has already demonstrated (welfare) that people with take the freebies and stagnate.

So this big boat just miraculously appears out of nowhere. Who built the boat? Who paid for the boat? Who pays to maintain it. Who paid the two guys to man it? Who pays for their insurance premium when somebody slips and falls?

That is the problem with socialist ideals....never bother to look into how it would actually get implemented and who would pay for it.

Talk about ignroant propaganda.

The issues of welfare are not evidence against a UBI as the entire purpose of a UBI is to avoid the entrapping effects of welfare.

That is about as smart as saying, "Run-flat tires just won't work. History has show us that tires go flat........"

And no, I am not trying to convince you. You are a lost cause of concrete thought. I am only replying so that other people don't just accept the nonsense that you are spewing.

Who pays for the Alaska permanent fund? Why is it so wildly popular in Alaska including conservatives?

Look up the word socialism, it does not mean what you think it means. There is no government control of the means of production of anything at all with this plan.

first, the Alaska Permanent Fund is funded by oil company revenues. It is popular because it give away free shit at the expense of the oil companies. But before you go all gaga over it, it is not guaranteed, varies in amount and exactly how expensive is it to live in Alaska? Stupid expensive and this has done nothing to alleviate the issue. On top of that, crime is rampant in Anchorage and a large portion of the population lives in plywood hovels.

Listen, you can spin it all you want, but UBI is simply a fancy way of taking more from those who have worked for it, and giving it to those who do not have it. Connect the dots in any fashion or direction you want, but on one end of the page is workers with, and the other end of the page is those without. No thanks.

Why is it popular with conservatives? Why is it OK to take oil company revenues but not tech company revenues when oil companies pay large amounts of tax while tech companies use tech to play the international game and avoid taxation?

And, your second paragraph is spin. It completely misses the point of why this change in policy would be beneficial. See, you are defending the means tested welfare system because that is what we have and nobody is ever going to just take it away. And, you are defending letting people with means scapegoat those without means as "taking from the government" when clearly with the way our government currently functions it hands money to the wealthy all day long also and in larger amounts.

It is easy to sit around and say "No, I don't like it." It is far more difficult to fix problems. Nobody has ever addressed the welfare issue in a functional way from either party. Saying "we shouldn't give money to others who didn't earn it" when that is exactly what we do now but in a way that prevents change for the better is what you are advocating whether you want to or not. And, to that, I say "No thanks."

I'm done here as this is a picture thread.
